Commissions will vary between agents and companies. No one can discuss an exact commission online as it is against the law. it violates anti trust laws. When you call an agent or meet with an agent they can quote you their fees but cant discuss what anyone else charges. When asking what they charge, the most important thinjg is what you get for it. The old adage you get what you pay for is so true in this industry. You dont have to pay an extreme amount to get extremely good service, but paying too less could hurt you in marketing, advertising and the sale of your home. Just ask what they charge, what they offer for it and then tell them what you expect and what you are willing to pay. Hopfully your goals and their services match and you find a good fit. Good luck with your sale... more

If you had a civil engineer look at it and he was not concerned, then get it in writing for the potential buyer. If you spend money on steel or anchor systems now, you may not get your money back in the sale price or the buyer may not like the method of repairs. It is better to negotiate this in the contract after the new buyer has had a home inspection and looked at the engineer's report. Good luck.... more
